Poem.Dust Thou Art!

Updated on January 6, 2013

“Dust Thou Art”’

Everything in life

As it came

With all its beauty

See its splendor

and its shame


Everything in life

as it came

Untouched

Each and

every living thing

far apart

as they once were

a gap bridged

as eagles soar

Now closer

than sand is

to the shore

As they band

Together

only time

Divides

A distance

Every man must

one day

measure

his own share

This stance

from whence

he came

That same dust

Wherein

Mankind

will find his peace

His Gold,

his silver

His precious

stones

His stories untold

Those he must

leave behind

As he grows old

Professing

to learn

While he measures

burns and destroys

that which giveth

the life he breathe

That which

stands in his path

of righteousness

As he receives

It shall all

Return

To be forever

Dust

Only in our

Minds

The picture

did Change

Only in our

Minds

The true

essence

of Dust

Appears to be

strange

But there's

nothing

Different

Under this

sun

It’s always

been Dust

Since time

begun

In this dust

All life remains

Forever

The same.

And all will

be reminded

In time

From dust

thou Art

And to dust

Thou Shall

return.


Bless.

      Yes my brethren Frank.

      I told you I will marry an editor, it's what's missing. I got all the ideas, and the "Most High" is firmly in control.

      The mistakes of the past cannot repeat themselves. I write about "Once Bitten"

      Lets see how quick the spirit leads.

      Thanks for the correction, see you love what is a mistake

      I see greatness even in what others call failure.

      If everything started with Dust everything came from the same thing , so they all possess the very same ingredients.

      It's a matter of what you believe!

      Bless.

      Thanks Mary. I love when poetry flow. I for one don't have a style , but I can tell you sincerely that , as long as you have it in you to say , and you say it your true and sincere way , it can go in any style.

      So my answer is my style.

      I Love the one called Haiku, the Poet Always Exploring Introduced here some days ago, never even knew poetry had names.lol.

      Thanks for reading and your kind comment.I will stop by for a visit soon

      Bless.

      I really like this style of poetry. I am trying to learn different styles. This is a beautiful poem. What style would you call this? I voted it UP, etc.

      Thanks Clara , and great to see you . Yes without much of any arguments on that topic , it's only fair to say that , as one believes in the Most High God and I do , we are are not simply dust in the wind, but a greater beginning in the inner workings of God, mankind is the greatest thing on the face of this earth. He has everlasting questions to answer.

      When you find some time,Read my Hub: How well do you know yourself.

      Blessings Clara.
